Easy One Bowl Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Scones
September is here and it’s time to start baking with pumpkin. It’s one of my favor dessert flavors and excited that my kitchen helper enjoys it too. Actually, my kitchen helper’s favorite ingredient is cinnamon and when I received a bag of cinnamon chips as a gift, yes that’s my idea of a gift, I knew we had many cinnamon recipes in our future. (Enjoy the three other Cinnamon Chip inspired recipes at the bottom on this post.) These easy one bowl Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Scones were a huge hit in my house and I know they will be too for your family.
During this recipe your kitchen helper will be able to work on their fine motor skills in multiple ways. First pouring the ingredients into the bowl, then using a pastry cutter to work in the butter, mixing all the remaining ingredients and cutting the dough with a bench knife to create perfect size scones. They only need to wait 12-15 minutes until they are completely baked and ready to cool slightly. Enjoy as an after school snack or early morning treat.
So tell me, what is your favorite pumpkin flavored or cinnamon chip dessert? Leave a comment below.

- 1 1/2 Cup (180g) - Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 1/2 Teaspoon - Baking Powder
- 1/4 Cup - Cinnamon Chips
- 1/4 Teaspoon - Salt
- 2 Tablespoons - Unsalted butter, chilled
- 1/2 Cup - Pumpkin Puree
- 8 1/8 - Teaspoons - Maple Syrup
- 1/4 Cup - Milk
- Preheat oven to 425° F and place a silicone mat onto a baking sheet (I used a 1/4 baking sheet)
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Use a pastry cutter and cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbles.
- Add the pumpkin, maple syrup and 10 teaspoons of milk until incorporated.
- Mix in the cinnamon chips until dough comes together.
- Transfer the dough ball onto the baking sheet. Gently pat down (1" thick) and form a circle with the dough. (review image above)
- Use a bench knife and cut into 8 small scones or 6 larger scones. Separate the triangles slightly, but not too much. Keeping them close will help them rise into a perfect scone shape.
- Bake 425° for 12-14 minutes, until slightly brown on top. Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack.
